Looking to Hire Youth?

Youth Job Link


Starting April 1st, 2016!

Youth Job Link, is designed to help youth, aged 15 to 29, who do not face significant barriers to employment, but who could benefit from some extra help to plan their careers and transition to the labour market. The program will include youth-focused career exploration and career management services, as well as job search, readiness and matching assistance.

In some cases, individual supports and employer incentives will also be available to offset the costs of on-the-job-training, new employee orientation and other hiring-related costs, for those youth that need more assistance finding work.

Keep an eye out for more information to follow!


Youth Job Connection


Youth Job Connection is a new initiative available through Career Edge that is designed to help young people between the ages of 15 and 29 living in Trenton, Belleville, Napanee and Picton who face multiple barriers to employment and are employable. This program provides access to employability and employment skills development, along with education/training and work experiences. The goal is to achieve long-term employment, meaningful careers, and success in their future working lives.

Employers will receive a subsidy for providing training opportunities to the participants. The amount of the subsidy will depend on the amount of training required for the job and the skill set of the participant at the time of placement.
